NBC News legal analyst Danny Cevallos tells TODAY the upgrading of charges against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin from third-degree to second-degree murder may actually make it easier for him to be convicted because “all the state needs to prove now is that officer Chauvin intended to commit third-degree assault.” It may also make it easier to convict the other three officers involved in George Floyd’s death, Cevallos explains.
